The BMW Performance exhaust looks like the car is dragging a scrotum.

Others look like they have been superglued to a 44 gal drum.

The straight through design of pipes to cans is the most logical way to set them out - ok, so seeing the diff cooler might not be so cool but it beats the alternatives.

I'm not calling you out but you should see them in person before judging. I get several comments daily on the pipes and I get noticed in the street far more than I would like.

Would I change anything? No way
Look mate, as I said, I based my opinion based on the first pic. It's nothing personal. I was not trying to compare your car with a 1///. Let's leave it at that. Enjoy your car. Don't worry about what I said ... as long as you're happy and enjoying it, that's what matters at the end of the day.
